Police: 2 teens are suspects in Clearwater armed burglary

CLEARWATER — Police have arrested two teenagers they say may be connected to an armed burglary and shooting inside a Clearwater home last week.

A 16-year-old girl came home to her house on Ridgewood Street Friday and surprised three burglars, Clearwater police said. One of the burglars fired at her, but missed.

Police arrested one suspect, who is 16 years old, on Friday, but the other suspects remained at large.

Two guns, a portable DVD player and jewelry were stolen from the home, police said.

On Sunday police arrested two teens: a 17-year-old, the brother of the teen arrested last week, on unrelated charges of burglary and car theft, and a 15-year-old for violation of probation.

Detectives said they believe the two teens are the other suspects in the Ridgewood Street burglary, but they had not charged them as of Tuesday afternoon.

The investigation is continuing.
